    Local government association (LGA)
    The LGA exists to promote better local government. The Local Government Association (LGA) was formed on 1 April 1997 and represents the local authorities of England and Wales - a total of just under 500 authorities. These local authorities represent over 50 million people and spend around £65 billion pounds per annum.

    Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (ConvCosla)
    COSLA is the representative voice of Scottish local government. It acts as the employers’ association on behalf of all Scottish councils, negotiating salaries, wages and conditions of service for local government employees with the relevant trade unions.
